For Tom Overtoom, only the result in the battle for the play-offs counts

A boring game against Jong FC Utrecht was converted by Telstar into a win, 0-1. Three very important points in the battle for the play-offs. Goal scorer Tom Overtoom: “You should especially look at the end result and we can be satisfied with that.”

Despite the few chances, the joy about the victory was no less. “These matches also count, we really need these points in the battle for the play-offs”, says Overtoom. “You are now also on the field, this is not the easiest field to play on. Utrecht also suffered from it. I think we had it well under control.”

Trainer Mike Snoei: “Young FC Utrecht was behind, but didn’t even put pressure on our rearguard. That surprised me enormously. Then it will be difficult to expand it.”

After months of injury, Koen Blommestijn returned to the selection. However, Snoei did not give him any playing minutes. “It was no easy task for me to let Koen participate. We have even more players. It is above all a fantastic achievement that he is back.”
